The Best Art and Design Blogs to Follow

Finding the best art and design blogs on the internet is no easy task. Not because there aren’t lots of great art and design blogs out there, but because there are so many beautiful aspects of visual culture to choose from, like web design, art of drawing, interior design...! So First Site Guide decided to take a crack at it, though, and we’ve got what we think is a pretty good list.

We’ve done our best to narrow it down in order to produce this (still quite long) list of the best art and design blogs on the internet. In order to do that, we didn’t just look at the art and design, but the blogs themselves.

What we’ve done is found a group of talented artists and designers who also excel at communicating their work to the rest of the internet. So when you’re looking through all of their work, take a moment to look at the design behind it, and the strategies they use to reach out to the rest of the net. If there’s one thing that’s hard to do on the internet, it’s stand out from the crowd. There are loads of amazing artists and designers, all over the world, struggling not because they don’t have the skills or drive, but because no one knows about their great work.

Or, hey, don’t look at any of that stuff. If you want to just scroll through and enjoy all the pretty things, well, honestly, that’s a pretty good way to go, too.
